Graduation Rate

Loading...
67%
ABOVE AVERAGE

Mercy College of Ohio graduation rate is above the national average.

67% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Mercy College of Ohio completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

Mercy has been a blessing for me. I obtained my ADN and couldnt be happier. The professors were always welcoming and helpful and I even was hired by a hopsital we did clinicals for before I even graduated. I used the tutor, Sarah, throughout my degree and she helped me through every class. she is an absolute angel! Everyone I have met through Mercy and Mercy Health have been amazing. I recommend everyone that is interested in nursing to Mercy. I was willing to drive an hour daily to obtain my degree from here and I would gladly do it again.

Denise, I added to this review, please read if you see this. I graduated from Mercy a few years ago. It was one of the worst experiences I've ever gone through. I did graduate and got what I went there for but students are repeatedly disrespected by teachers and the clinical instructors. The skills lab was a joke. I'd go in there to ask questions and I was told several times to find a book and look up the answer instead of doing their jobs that they are paid for and help a student with their knowledge. If I couldn't find the answer, they'd hand me another book to look at while they continued to have conversations with their co-workers. Most clinical instructors were mean and made you feel stupid, even in front of patient's. I may have a RN after my name but I regret going to this school. I'll never forget some of the cruel things several teachers have said to me and how unhelpful and unsupportive the staff was. After I graduated, several of the teachers got fired and I wasn't surprised. I don't recommend going to this school. Nursing school is hard enough and this school isn't worth the added stress. EDIT: Hi Denise, not sure if you will see this, I appreciate your response. I just want to add that the teachers, clinical instructors, and staff, need to realize people are not only students but also paying customers. I feel Mercy lacks in customer service when it comes to students. This surprises me since having good customer service skills is an important aspect in nursing for patient satisfaction. I agree with a previous review that stated, " students are treated like burdens." I never once heard words of encouragement from the staff at Mercy. A lot of negative and unkind remarks. I also got more help from the students working in the skills lab than the nurses who worked in the lab. I feel the staff at Mercy needs to be educated on the importance of customer service skills. If there are multiple student complaints about an educator, take it seriously. When I was there, one of your clinical instructors actually got me to cry in front several students and hospital staff. I felt I had no one to report this to, worried staff would turn against me.

Don't be discouraged by the 1 star posters. My daughter attended Mercy College and we couldn't be happier. The staff is great. The people that had trouble in school had several resources to help them do better. My daughter constantly scheduled tutoring sessions. Mercy prepares the student, but the student has to be prepared for the challenge of nursing school. Remember nurses have human lives they are taking care of. Does anyone want someone getting low grades to be their nurse? I don't. No school prepares their student for the NCLEX (test to become a registered nurse) better than Mercy. We were so happy with Mercy that our son is now attending Mercy this fall (BSN program). Great school!

My wife and I applied what a waste of money I spent 50 dollars for nothing stay away don't even apply. Find a different college.

Overall Rating:

My experience at Mercy was more like a nightmare. The students are treated like burdens, instead of the paying consumers they are. There is a huge lack of communication between instructors and lab staff, which leaves students unsure and ultimately unsuccessful. Educators are supposed to give students the tools they need to become successful, this is not what I received during my time at Mercy. You can study hard, ace exams, and practice in the lab everyday, however one poorly proctored lab check off can fail you for a whole semester, and if you try to appeal, it is just your word against theirs. I do not recommend Mercy if you hope to graduate , and get that RN behind your name.
